For Parents, Educators and others who take care of kids:
Aside from being a fun song to sing and dance to, Growth Spurt Grumpies is meant to be used as an educational tool. We all go through our grumpy moments and days, especially as we're learning new things, and sometimes the feelings of anger and discomfort get so big that we can find ourselves overwhelmed and tempted to lash out. Growth Spurt Grumpies can bring up the conversation about grumpiness/anger and what we can do for ourselves and each other when we're in the throes of it. It helps us label and hold the experience, allowing us to honor it as a normal part of being human. And, of course, we can sing and dance and scream along with the song to fully embody the feelings (and find some humor in it all).
